In today’s agile, fast-paced development environment, resource-strapped IT departments can struggle to keep up with demand. This can cause slow delivery and lack of innovation, which can lead to frustration on the part of business leaders.

This is why it is essential to have a backlog of applications and automation — a strategic, prioritized to-do list that keeps everyone on track and speeds development cycles. Having a backlog reduces confusion and rush jobs and helps your team be more productive and responsive.

Build your backlog with Power Platform

If you don’t have the time or resources to establish a proper backlog, you should look at Microsoft Power Platform. It is ideal for helping you rapidly develop that backlog of applications and automation you need to drive efficiency, innovation, and agility.

In case you don’t know, Power Platform is a suite of low code | no code tools that provides a robust platform for rapid in-house process automation and application development with minimal resources. It’s easy to use, cost-effective, and includes a wealth of pre-built connectors that allow you to easily develop reusable components.
